If i was very enthusiastic, and found an original, that had been raced, with all fia papers and proof, and was able to prove and show it had race history in year 1969 ( not from 1970 onwards, there is a reason for this), i'd be in the 100 to 150 k mark
I don't understand this post. There were no
432s ( or any other S30-series Zs ) that raced in 1969.
The earliest official race - obviously not including any traffic-light drag racing - was on 18th January 1970. That car was a factory 'works' Fairlady Z432-R ( the super-lightweight bodied version of the 432 ) and it was light years away from a stock 432, let alone an L-series engined car.
unlikely to find a genuine 432 or 432-R with period race history for sale at any amount of money. There are
a few out there ( a handful or less... ), but generally speaking it's not a question of money. With cars like that it's often a case of who
you know rather than what
you know, or how much coin you've got....
I've always wondered what an S20 would sell for on its own. Never been able to see?
You'd be looking at something around 1 million to 2.5 million JPY for a rebuildable core in Japan these days, but spare engines are in short supply and S20-engined car owners and S20 specialists tend to sit on them for rainy days. The proper 432 / 432-R type of S20 ( different oil pan & pickup, along with several other detail differences ) are harder to find than C10 or C110 GT-R versions due to numbers made. You need a lot of other 'correct' parts to go with it, too.
Doesn't look like the Z432 has many differences. Exhaust, badges, grille, S1 interior and hatch, doesn't have the S1 C pillars though...?
There are actually hundreds
of differences between an L-series engined Z and an S20-engined Z built in the same period. The factory parts lists are the best places to see the differences. The 432-R is another kettle of fish altogether.
C pillar emblems on all 'early' Japanese market airflow cars ( vented tailgate type ) were all the same, whether Fairlady Z, Fairlady Z-L, Fairlady Z432 or Fairlady Z432-R. It was a flattish, round emblem with a big letter 'Z' in the middle, and it attached to the unvented C pillars with two prongs that were the same as '240Z' emblem on the solid pillared Export market cars.
